Rockstar Games continues to stay secretive about any update on their much-awaited offering, titled Red Dead Redemption 2. Fans are starting to become annoyed, resulting in more speculations on what to expect when the game finally hits the shelves. Here are some theories based on the flow of updates seen on Grand Theft Auto. Warning: these are just predictions.
In Grand Theft Auto 5, Rockstar awarded loot to players who are upgrading from one gaming platform to another one. Furthermore, they throw in exclusive content through their website, Red Dead Online. If players transfer their characters from the Xbox or PlayStation 3 to a new console or PC, the company gives them exclusive items and vehicles. It is a treat for them, because some of these goodies are not available for the new Grand Theft Auto converts. It could be possible that the same idea may be applied to RDR 2.
RDR2 predicts that Red Dead Online will utilize Rockstar Social Club, similar to GTA 5‘s approach. This will make it more convenient for the developer to identify players that are playing both titles. This is a strategic move for the developer’s part. They can easily throw in special items for players who link their Red Dead Redemption 2 copies to the Social Club account. This is so long as they have GTA 5 subscribed to the Social Club already.
So far, everyone is still anticipating the release of RDR 2. Hopefully, Rockstar Games will reveal updates on what’s happening in the weeks to come.
Red Dead Redemption 2 May Come To PC
Denuvo, Digital Rights Management (DRM) providers, recently encountered a technical issue on their website. This caused all users in the website to experience some kind of malfunction. This allowed them to access restricted information from the website’s database, specifically details on the titles that may come on PC, which may include Red Dead Redemption 2.
In addition to the leak, Rockstar Studios may use Denuvo in the future. It is a common knowledge in the gaming world that Denuvo is only used on PC. Thus, Rockstar Studios may work with Denuvo for DRM needs. DRM is a system used by video game developers and publishers for copyright protection for their titles. This prohibits the unauthorized redistribution of games and limits the content that players can copy from the game.
According to the game’s website, Grand Theft Auto was one game by Rockstar Studios that the publishers released on the PC platform after two years from its initial launch. This release was something that many thought would arrive at a much later time. Some speculate that Rockstar Studios may pull off the same strategy with their new game. However, these are just rumors until the game creator confirms them. Hopefully, as soon as possible.
